BARCELONA, Spain -- The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet has a super skinny body that's completely waterproof. Inside, it's packing 2.3GHz quad-core processor and runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat software. There's no word on how much it'll cost yet, but it's due to go on sale in the UK in March. Sony hasn't said if it'll be available in the US.

The slate is completely waterproof, not only keeping it safe from spilled drinks but also letting you safely take it into the bath to watch movies as you're relaxing among the bubbles.

It also means you can take snaps underwater, too. In the sea though; I don't suggest taking too many pictures in the bath.

At only 6.4mm, it's incredibly skinny.

It shares many design features of the rest of Sony's phones, like the chunky power button.

Rubberised flaps cover the major ports to keep the water out, but the headphone jack doesn't need one -- it's much easier to get to.

The speakers have been moved to the front edges of the tablet, meaning it fires the sound toward you.

It comes running the latest version of Android, known as 4.4 KitKat.

The interface is easy to get to grips with. Sony has popped its own image galleries into the mix as well as its music and video streaming services.
